Confessions – 1

I hereby announce a substantial (albeit negotiable) reward to anyone who can come up with a skinless version of tomatoes. I’m dead serious, and here’s why.

Imagine a normal sandwich with a few tomato slices. Throw in cheese/mayo/extra butter/chicken or whatever it takes to make it more delicious. Picture yourself biting into this sandwich and taste the lip-smacking combination of sauce, salt, pepper and all that you’ve put in. Just as you’re about to swallow this awesome morsel, imagine the supremely irritating tomato skin sliding between your teeth. You try to bite it but it’s like this stupid piece of plastic which refuses to get cut- the plastic of the unacceptable plastic bag variety. In fact, it tastes like that plastic too (let’s ignore the fact that I know what plastic tastes like). It doesn’t make sense to just gulp down this monstrosity, and all that is left is you looking ridiculous with a mouthful of sandwich and tomato skin.

Peeling the skin before putting in the slices is a criminal waste of manpower. Most of the times, by the time you remember this inconvenience, the sandwich is already in the grill. Sorry if this ruined your real/ imaginary sandwich – it ruins mine every single time. I have nothing against tomatoes but their skin seriously freaks me out. Call me a tomato-racist if you must, but the substantial offer still stands.

Also, I sincerely hope no one is (was) eating a sandwich while reading this. Bon Apetit.
